Overview

Do you have trouble setting goals? Would you like to have greater focus, stronger follow-through, and achieve dramatically better results? Would you like to learn how to get anything you want from life—more money, a new home, a promotion, better relationships, a greater sense of fulfillment, or anything else you can imagine?

If so, then read The Magic Lamp. This remarkable book describes a simple yet unforgettable process for how to obtain whatever you want from both your personal life and your career.

What's the Secret?

The Magic Lamp is the first goal-setting guide for people who hate setting goals. Goals can take you anywhere you want to go, but they rarely give you the inspiration you need to get there. Wishes are different. They have emotional impact. They give you the freedom to dream and the power to make your dreams come true.

The Magic Lamp transforms the process of setting goals from a dull routine into an exciting adventure because it's the first book to combine the methods of goal setting with the magic of making your wishes come true.

    Uncommon Common Sense

    I am a typical goal-oriented male who feels best when he is most productive. I am also an academic and a rabbi charged with mentoring others in living productively. Keith Ellis' book is superb. Unlike some self-help books, his suggestions are not grandiose nor are they suited to only one personality type. The book makes great sense, and his ideas work the moment they are implemented. I have already begun recommending this book to others, peers and those whom I mentor. I will continue to do so. In fact, I am purchasing another copy today to send to 'my son the writer.' Bravo, Mr. Ellis.

    A Dream Come True

    One of the high school students I tutor recommended this remarkable book to me. I'm greatful he did because I was in need of this book at the time. 'The Magic Lamp' slowly unfolds a big picture right infront of your eyes. Participating in the writing activities allow you to realize that without a focus on what you want out of life your wishes won't come true. Being a college student I was headed towards wanting to give up on school because I had no focus. Thank God for this book because I'm now back on track and ready to make my wishes come true. This book will make life seem a lot easier and a lot less stressful. It gives you control over your own life (dreams) This book has also made me realize that it's easier to become successful in work that you enjoy doing rather than working for a lot of money doing something which bores you. Get your copy of 'The Magic Lamp,' today. Trust me, taking the time to read this book will makeup for the time wasted without it when you had no focus, and didn't know how to find it.

    Useful self-help

    Lock on, Act, Manage, Persist. Mr. Ellis offers a practical guide to goal setting that offers inspiration as well as motivation. A lot of the items discussed are common sense, such as the cause and effect relationship, but their value cannot be appreciated until put into Mr. Ellis' context. I can tell the author has done his due diligence in researching goal making, and that he really enjoys writing about this subject. I would pass this book on to a friend or family member in a heartbeat!
